When the spring season arrives on Anna Maria Island, magic is truly in the air! Although our weather remains moderate throughout the year, spring marks the warming up after the winter period, and makes for simply perfect beach days. Chill out at Bean Point with a sweeping view of the Gulf and Tampa Bay, go kayaking in a hidden cove, have a BBQ picnic at Bayfront Park. If you tire of that, you’ll find countless options for dining and shopping, all in the airy springtime breeze. Anna Maria Island is always a popular spot for soaking up tropical vibes, but the spring time is truly unmatched!

Besides the beach, there will be plenty of outdoor activities to do, from renting bicycles to cruise the island to attending a local event. Spring brings plenty of entertaining events to Anna Maria Island, so if you’re visiting during the spring, you’re in luck. Between kicking back at your Anna Maria Island vacation home, you can explore the island and head out to a few of them yourself. There really isn’t a better time to do it! To make it simple, we’ve gathered some of our favorite 2023 upcoming spring events on AMI!
